"60% of SpamCop.net filtered email is spam": Gmail

Recommended Posts

I'm currently filtering all my mail through SpamCop.

Mail to myaddress[at]cridland.net goes to myaddress[at]spamcop.net, whereupon filtered messages are sent to myaddress[at]gmail.com

However, Gmail gets confused with the extra headers that SpamCop places in the message, and marks around 60% of all my filtered messages as spam.

This is obviously rather tiresome, since Gmail's interface is really rather nicer than Horde (Spamcop's own webmail).

Has anyone else noticed this? And any way to fix this?

(Incidentally, Gmail's spam filtering is normally surprisingly good: around 98% reliable for me. But reporting the spams is a pain, and I'd rather report them if I can.)

Any idea about which "additional hader lines" migth be the actual problem? Have you done the "not spam" training on any of these and does that have any effect at all on future receipt of similar e-mails? (at GMail)

I'd suggest either fetching the non-spam messages from pop.spamcop.net or imap.spamcop.net (avoiding forwarding) or forwarding to systems that don't exhibit such behavior.
